Uniquely Nelson has been working with NMIT to give students the opportunity to learn as well as support the Nelson retailers in the online space. Uniquely Nelson’s marketing over the last 18 months has very much been online with the development of virtual reality within the retail space as well the new online website, Nelson Advantage. Over the last week, Level 6 Advanced Lens-based Media students have been working with different city retailers and hospitality outlets by providing them with social media images of there product that they can use to market themselves and it’s free.
Jess Shirley, Lens based Media tutor said “We are providing the students with a real-world opportunity to work in the industry. Students will gain experience creating promotional imagery (photography, GIF, cinemagraph or video) which can be used by the retailer. This collaboration is a win/win for both students, who gain experience and imagery for their portfolios and retailers to receive creative imagery for promoting their businesses.
Last week’s businesses included Expressionsflorist, Glen James Jewellers, Lambrettas, Living Sound Morrison Square and Aki Sushi Morrison Square.
The last session had the students come into the shops for an hour or so if you are a retailer or restaurant that would like to get involved, please contact us at Uniquely Nelson as we have another two opportunities in the next month.
